With a thirst for coffee and a dream of community development, Jennifer Roberts and her family set out and created Courthouse Coffee & Creamery. CCC was a local coffee shop bringing students, teachers, entrepreneurs an everyone in between together. After a successful two years, the decision was to turn Courthouse Coffee & Creamery into a full service restaurant - MABELS.
In 2013 Jennifer met with Ina Garten in New York City. Ina shared very wise words with Jennifer:
"You watch your customers. They will tell you things you can not see."
Since, then MABELS has been serving what our customers love; craft burgers and crazy shakes. Our menu consists of stacked paninis and massive craft burgers. We are always trying to bring something epic to our customers in the community they live in.
MABELS plans on growing and coming to communities near you over the next fifteen years. Jennifer and her daughter, Denali, are striving to bring communities together through craft burgers and crazy shakes, where families create lasting memories.
